FAIL: Windows 10 bulk patch produces INFINITE CRASH LOOP

John Savard Silver badge


It is very sad that this incident likely won't immediately cause Microsoft to abandon its ill-conceived decision to require all users of Windows 10, except for certain enterprise customers, to allow all Windows updates automatically and unconditionally. Microsoft still doesn't understand that things like this must never happen, that people expect their computers to be reliable.

It's also a pity that IBM doesn't see a market opportunity here. With its experience at making reliable computer systems like the z13, they have the knowledge and expertise to produce a computer that works properly for the home and small business market. (Yes, I know the mess we have now started out as the IBM PC, but IBM let Microsoft and Intel take over responsibility for it.)
